Toy police cars - Product Recall

Filed under: Alerts & Recalls

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced the recall of about 3,000 Toy Police Cars. The red paint on the cars contains excessive levels of lead, which is hazardous to the health of children and in violation of the federal lead paint standard.

The recall involves toy cars with a friction function (push the car forward and release and it continues to move forward). The cars were sold in red/white and purple/white color combinations. They measure 8 inches by 4 inches by 4½ inches and have item number TF820 printed on the packaging.

The cars were made in China and imported by TCB Imports of Vernon, California. They were sold at dollar and discount stores nationwide from May 2008 through August 2008 for about $1 each.

If you have one, you should immediately take it away from your child and return it to the store where purchased for a full refund. For more information, contact TCB Imports, Inc. by calling (888) 674-5497 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, or by visiting their Web site.
